Just how thin is the new fourth-generation iPad? According to the company's own product page, impossibly so.
The page describing the iPad's design says quite prominently that the new iPad is 0.37 millimeters thin, or about the same thickness as the lead in a mechanical pencil. It's also roughly the thickness of three or four human hairs stacked together.
We reviewed the fourth-generation iPad last week, but during our testing we failed to notice Apple had flattened the tablet to the point where it's about as thick as four sheets of standard office paper. Perhaps we were holding it wrong?
